Stepping Up to the Plate
"It is hard to fail; but it is worse never to have tried to succeed."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Failure hurts; it is hard to admit, and it sometimes embarrasses us. We all have been touched by failure, though, haven't we? And what happens after failure? We get up, dust ourselves off, and begin anew. Failure is a deflating feeling, but the worst feeling of all is coming to the end of our time on this earth and realizing we never went after our dreams because we were too afraid to take any chances- we were too afraid of failure. Pursue your dreams. You may fail; if you do, you will begin again. And if you succeed- well, can you imagine the invigorating feeling? It is surely among the best feelings we can ever have.
TODAY I WILL STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND DO SOMETHING TO MOVE MY GOALS FORWARD.
